Last weekend I traveled to Charlottesville, Virginia to celebrate my friend Melissa’s bachelorette party. I’ve known Melissa forever and she’s one of the sweetest people I know. We went to high school and to college together. Then after college we lived together in Arlington, Virginia. I wanted to wear this new white eyelet dress wine tasting, but I ended up wearing jeans and layering because it was so cold. But despite the weather, we still had a fabulous weekend.

While I was vacationing in Miami, I used my new Bersuse towel (see part 1 and part 2 recap of my Miami trip). Bersuse towels are high quality Turkish towels, but for an affordable price. The towels are hand-loomed in Turkey, and are %100 Turkish Cotton. I’m obsessed with my orange and purple Bersuse towel. The towel is extremely soft and the colors are bright and beautiful.
Check out my Miami Getaway // Part 1 post, for the first part of my Miami girls trip. My closest girlfriends and I all live in different cities so we try to plan weekends to visit one another. Tricia lives in Los Angeles, Jess lives in D.C., Laken lives in Baltimore, and Carly one of Tricia’s friends from Los Angeles came as well. So we had a fun girls weekend in South Beach Miami with 5 girls.
My closest girlfriends and I all live in different cities so we try to plan weekends to visit one another. My oldest and dearest friend, Tricia, lives in Los Angeles and organized a girls trip to South Beach Miami. I immediately jumped on the bandwagon for a girls weekend filled with sunshine, sand and mojitos. Most of my new outfits I got for Miami are from Tobi, because Tobi is affordable, but all the clothes are unique and have a laid back, West Coast vibe.
I’m headed to a girls weekend to Miami at the end of March! My best girlfriends and I live far apart from one another (from the east coast to the west coast) so we try to plan a girls trip once a year. Last May we celebrated my bachelorette/birthday party in Nashville. Then in June in Virginia, I saw everyone at my wedding. But that was about 8 months ago (time flies) so it’s about time we get together again! I also can’t believe I’ve been married for almost a year!
My husband and I spent Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with my family in Virginia and then we flew back home to Atlanta on Tuesday December 27. Then, on Wednesday December 28 we drove to Hilton Head to see his family. His mother and step-father live in Hilton Head and his sister flew in town from Chicago.
Hope everyone had a lovely holiday with their loved ones! Christmas is my favorite time of the year. Now that I live in Atlanta, I don’t see my family as much as I’d like to. So, I look forward to the moments I can be home. We spent the holidays in Virginia and will be heading to Hilton Head on Wednesday to see my husband’s family.
One of my best friends (and bridesmaids in my wedding), Jess visited Atlanta two weekends ago. We’re both obsessed with the CW drama, ‘The Vampire Diaries‘. The Vampire Diaries takes place in the fictional town of Mystic Falls, Virginia. Mystic Falls is the real life town of Covington, Georgia, and is only 45 minutes away from Atlanta. So, I booked Jess and I tickets to tour the town of Covington and see where the Vampire Diaries films. The Vampire Diaries is in its last season (so sad) so we had to check out the tour before the last episode airs!
Last weekend my sister Alissa and I made a quick trip to Bradenton, Florida to visit our grandparents and our aunt. Alissa flew from New York City and I flew from Atlanta and we met in the Tampa airport. Our youngest sister Caylen had a wedding to attend to in New Orleans so she couldn’t make it to Bradenton with Alissa and I.
Jeremy and I were in Charlottesville this past weekend celebrating his friend, Porter’s wedding. Jeremy and Porter met their first year of Darden business school and lived together their second year. They became close friends and Porter was one of Jeremy’s groomsmen in our June wedding. Porter met Katie (his now wife) at Darden so it came full circle last weekend when they got married in Charlottesville.
Lanie and Brian’s wedding was on Saturday October 15 at the Martha’s Vineyard Sailing Camp. The Martha’s Vineyard Sailing Camp is on 15 wooded acres and sits high on a Bluff and overlooks the Lagoon Pond and outer Vineyard Haven Harbor. The view for the wedding was spectacular and something out of a romantic movie. I kept asking myself when Ryan Gosling would appear… Lanie and Brian’s wedding reception was held inside the Martha’s Vineyard Sailing Camp facility and featured timbered vaulted ceilings and a fieldstone fireplace. The entire wedding was so cozy and beautiful. Lanie really outdid herself on planning her wedding.
Last weekend I was in Martha’s Vineyard celebrating my college roommate and sorority sister, Lanie’s wedding! Lanie’s family has had a house in Oak Bluffs for generations and she has spent every one of her summers at Martha’s Vineyard. I visited her the summer after we graduated college and I fell in love with the island. Brian (her now husband) proposed while they were vacationing on the island and I was hoping she’d get marred on Martha’s Vineyard. So when I got the wedding invitation I was so pumped to spend a weekend at Martha’s Vineyard again. It takes planes, trains and automobiles to get to Martha’s Vineyard, but when you get to the island it’s completely worth it.
